states. hispanic children are at the highest level of poverty in the history of the united states. i think the challenge is not how to bring them over to immigration reform or dialogue. just to make sure the latino community knows these facts and understands the failure of president obama. >> i agree with you there is a lot of ammunition. these comments about self deportation have indicated to some in the community he does not have respect for them. go to south texas and talk to latino ranch and farm owners and small businesses and members of the hispanic community. they are hard asses because they are the first to feel the adverse affect. cartels are shooting at them. are competing for jobs. there are a lot of reasons why they are hard asses but they do want to know the presidential candidate has respect for the community and in recognition this is not all a mexican problem. half the people here illegally came from hong kong the, nigeria on a visa and overstating it. the fact that all the people from central america are unworthy is a real problem. >> thank you. >> we will get behind
to cater to the libertarians. we are only one-quarter of 1% of the 169 million voters in the united states. the voters are looking for help. they are losing their jobs. they cannot get employment. the cost of college is far beyond what anyone can pay for. they cannot go into bankruptcy. the homes of parents are being foreclosed upon because of student debt. the small business has been stifled. a long that idea of small business is where we should be focusing. that is where i am focused. my first business was at nine years old when i had a paper route. i am a high-school dropout. i went to harvard law school. i a magna cum laude from long island university and it was tough getting into high school when you are -- tough getting into harvard when you are a high-school dropout. i have been through a lot of hard knocks but i have been waiting on tables, short order cooks, setting up tents at the bowling alley, delivering bulk and learning how to carry 10 bottles into arms. i still work about 18 hours a day. i could not even be here because i had to go to bankruptcy court for a client on a criti

of the chinese dissident chen who the government there can travel for a travel permit to go to the united states to study. before secretary of state hillary clinton worked tout and this is what romney had to say and he had been turned over to the chinese without protection. >> it is a dave shame for the obama administration. >> question: did governor over react in the middle of the diplomatic chrisis? >> i don't think so. it is what we are dealing with in china. we know we are dealing with people who are parinoid and control freaks and a totalitarian system. they control the wors on the internet and who visits him in jail or i am sorry, in the hospital. these are the things we are deal. and second there is a propensity that the administration seems to have to have an unwillingness to enforce american values. we saw that in 2009 in the green revolution in iran and we see it in china that the administration looked reluctant to enforce the defensive of the united states of human rights and respect for huhan rights and that is troubling. i am not sure why the administration has a propensity to feel
, and he said that the united states wanted to be a tremendous partner and cheerleader of the development of brazil's offshore industry. now, mr. president, i have to tell you that was like rubbing salt in the wound of tens of thousands of oil field workers and others who are suffering because of the obama administration policy here in this country really discouraging energy development. the way president obama proposed to be a strong supporter and partner and cheerleader of brazilian offshore development was through an ex-im bank loan and there are many of these sorts of loans. again, in august, 2009, talking about brazil, the case i mentioned, "the wall street journal" reported an editorial that -- quote -- "the u.s. is going to lend billions of dollars to brazil's state-owned oil company, petrobrass to finance exploration of the huge offshore delivery in brazil's oil field near rio de janeiro" -- close quote. again the ex-im bank provided a $2 billion loan to aid brazilian oil production and that's what president obama was cheering and encouraging and making happen. it's happened other
flight coming into the united states. that was foiled two weeks ago. the investigation is still unfolding. a short time ago we heard from white house chief adviser or counterterrorism. the big question how worried should we be that this bomb and others like it would not be detected by current safeguards. >> this i.ed was a threat from the standpoint of the design we've been able to determine and so now we're trying to make sure that we take the measures that we need to to prevent any other type of ied from getting through security procedures. >> so will ramped up vigilance mean new security measures again for u.s. travelers? a former assistant director of the fbi is in washington. good morning, tom. >> good morning, carol. >> a lot of people are about to board airplanes, are they safe? >> i think they're no safer than they were before all of this happened. the second thing i would like to add is there's nothing new in any of this. richard reid got on airplane with explosives similar undetected. the underwear bomber undetected boarding an airplane in amsterdam bound for the united states.
to the united states to study. before, secretary of state clinton worked out this apparent deal with the beijing government mitt romney weighed in and here is what he had to say about the cheng case and what at that point seemed to be the fact that he had been turned over to the chinese without any protections. >> this is a dark day for freedom and it is a day of seam for the obama administration. >> question, did governor romney overrehe act in the middle of a diplomatic crisis? >> i don't think so. first of all, i think it crisis is a reminder of what we are dealing with in china and we hope there are reformers in that government pushing for a more open system. what we though we are dealing with now are people that are paranoid and control freaks in a totaltarrian system. they control everything from the words you have search for on the internet and who gets to visit this gentleman when was in the hospital. secondly there is the prospencity that the administration seems to have of an unwillingness to forcefully assert america's values. we saw that tragically in 2009 in the green revolution in
by alleging the president of the united states was not really the president of the united states. he intimated that president obama is secretly foreign. that was the basis of the donald trump flash in the pan candidacy years ago. >> why doesn't he show his birth certificate? i think she should. three weeks ago when i started, i thought he was born in this country and now i have doubt. >> based on what? >> his grandmother said he was born in kenya and she was there and witnessed the birth. he doesn't have a birth certificate or he hasn't shown it. if you are going to be the president of the united states you have to be born in this country and there's a doubt as to whether or not he is. >> that little brain curdling wallow in celebrity driven up chuck came to an abrupt end about one year ago when on a wednesday afternoon, the president of the united states held a press conference at the white house to release his freaking birth certificate, to put that nonsense to rest. that was on a wednesday afternoon. three days later on saturday, it was the white house correspondence dinner where the presid
. >> is that what you believe? you're comfortable with same-sex marriage? >> i'm vice president of the united states of america. the president sets the policy. i am absolutely comfortable with the fact that many marrying men, women marrying women and heterosexual are entitled to the same right, all civil rights and liberties and i don't see much of a distinction beyond that. >> in a second term will this administration come out behind same-sex marriage? >> i can't speak to that. i don't know the answer to that. >> you can see in his response there at the end to the question of second term policy making that he thinks he might have gone too far. perhaps minutes after the remarks on sunday senior obama campaign advisor tweeted what vp said that all married couples should have the same rights is potus's position which is not exactly true. he didn't just say that gay couples have the same right, he said they should be able to get married. the reason the obama campaign was in a rush to assure everyone that news was not made because the president is not a supporter of the freedom to marry. despite a 1996
legalizing drugs would have a very positive effect on the murder rate in the united states. guest: i believe that. if we look at border violence with mexico, 40,000 deaths south of the border over the last four years. this is a prohibition phenomenon. these are disputes being played out with guns rather than the courts. legalized marijuana, arguably 75% of the border violence goes away as a result of legalizing marijuana. that being the estimate of the drug cartel's activities involved in the marijuana trade. host: the next call comes from michigan, outside detroit. jamie, you are on. caller: i was calling because i have a problem with the child protective services right now. i am wondering why in michigan the target of lower income families. they are targeting the lower income families and there is not any fairness in the court system. guest: i do not have the answer in this particular -- if the state is utilizing discretion in how the funds are being distributed. i get back to the model i think we're going to have to have to fix medicaid and medicare. virtually all existing federal program
rates. so, the economy is moving and the united states is benefiting from problems in europe and china because we are seeing some monies flow back in the united states. that is all good, too, and the united states could be the prettiest horse in the glue factory but it is still a very sluggish economy and moving at a below par rate. consumers are the key. 70's percent of our economy they are. and if we did not see more savings where they have room to spend or we do not see incomes improving, they are just going to be tapped out that is a real no one. >> what about a catalyst for a shot in the arm for the economy, everyone is talking about the fiscal cliff that the bush tax cuts have to be extended. if congress can pull this off, will that alone give us a psychological lift and we will feel more comfortable spending money, taking longer trips and driving further? what do you think of that idea? >>guest: well, i am glad you brought that up because the federal reserve talks about when they keep the interest rates low they are trying to create wealth effect to get the stock market up, and
't dream. my mother believed and my father believed that if i wanted to be president of the united states, i could be. i could be vice president. my mother and father and believed that if my brother and sister wanted to be a millionaire, they could be a millionaire. my mother and father dreamed as much as any rich guy dreams. >> absolutely. >> any don't get it! they don't get who we are. >> good morning. it's thursday, may 17th. >> who was that? >> that was the vice president of the united states. >> i don't get it. >> what do you mean you don't get it? >> i don't get who they are. i'm joking. of course, i get who joe is. >> i get who joe is. >> i am joe. joe is me. >> yes, you are. >> all right. >> you're confused. >> i'm back we have. we have jim cramer on the set running into 30 rock this morning scurrying around in circles going where is the "wall street journal." he looked like he needed a fix. >> mike, you hung out with baseball on us last night. >> baseball owners and bob bowman and who we were talking about who created and developed mlb-tv, which is just spectacular. >> spectacula
in the southwest united states, where cities that were, if you take certain cities on the edge of california, on their edge of los angeles, for example, that were -- had a conventional post war democratic and have now become 90 to 95% hispanic, this is a democratic that wasn't even in the 1960 u.s. census. that's actually a big transformation in a fairly short space of time. and it has consequences. now, when you put the why, i would do you care, that's the benign view. people think -- we were talking about broadway just we went on air. that's like the production of holiday pel low doll -- "hello dolly" and then he ran out of brassy, middle-aged blonds, and then he changed it to an all-black cast, and people think that's what happened if you have a muslim netherlands or muslim britain, there will be fewer pubs, the pubs will have to close, but essentially it will basically still be the same, and i don't think that's -- no serious person would argue that. >> host: on the cover of the new paperback version of "america alone" there's a little sticker, soon to be banned in canada. >> guest: that
of the united states of america, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under god, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. the presiding officer: the clerk will read a communication to the senate. the clerk: washington, d.c., may 23, 2012. to the senate: under the provisions of rule 1, paragraph 3, of the standing rules of the senate, i hereby appoint the honorable kirsten e. gillibrand, a senator from the state of new york, to perform the duties of the chair. signed: daniel k. inouye, president pro tempore. the presiding officer: the majority leader. the clerk will report the motion. the clerk: motion to proceed to calendar number 400, s. 3187, a bill to amend the federal food, drug and cosmetic act, and so forth and for other purposes. mr. reid: we are now on the motion to proceed to the f.d.a. user fees bill. the republicans will control the first half-hour, the majority the second half-hour. we're working on an agreement to consider amendments to the f.d.a. bill. we're close to being able to finalize that. we hope to get on an agreement and avoid filing cloture on t
,000 syrians dead. today the only response was symbolic. eight countries including the united states expelling syrian diplomats. in the year when the president is running on his foreign policy victories syria is becoming a lightning rod. >> this administration has a foreign policy which abandons american leadership. i know because i visit with these people that they are ready to help these people and they are helping them some. it cries out for american leadership. >> and today mitt romney said the president's lack of leadership has resulted in a policy of paralysis and we should work with partners to arm the opposition. now, that is something a lot of people -- that's a lightning rod in itself. and the obama administration is holding firm on its stance of no military action. >> no military action is always an option. and we haven't in this case removed options from the table. we do not believe that militarization for the situation in syria at this point is the right course of action. we believe it would lead to greater chaos and greater carnage. >> but will american intervention stop blood sh
of the united states, mitt romney [applause] >> thank you so very much. good thank you for the very powerful and moving and emotional introduction. thank you for your friendship. . pastor, thank you. faculty and staff and distinguished guests, parents and friends, and graduating seniors from liberty, for the graduates, this marks a clear ending and a clear beginning. did the task set before you four years ago is completed in full. to the class of 2012, well done and congratulations. i am told some of you may have taken longer than four years to complete your studies. good one of them said he completed its in only two terms, clinton costs and bush's. i share this with kathy. the romney campaign comes to a sudden stop when we spot a chick-fil-a. it is comfort food during the campaign season. and we needed a lot of comfort. congratulations on your honor today. [applause] of course, there are some people here who are even more pleased than the graduates. that would be their parents. their years of prayers and devotions and investment have added up to this joyful achievement. -- devotion and inve
is recognized for five minutes. mr. fattah: the congress of the united states in a bipartisan vote passed the energy independence and security act of 2007. it was signed into law by president bush. it just suggests that in federal procurement when we seek an energy that the department should use, energy efficient sources, so that we don't rely on unnecessary middle eastern supplies for oil, this removes this requirement. so i hope we would vote against it. this has been a part of the law for a number of years now and has helped save taxpayers money. so i would ask for a no vote on the amendment. the speaker pro tempore: does the gentleman yield back? -- the chair: does the gentleman yield back? mr. fattah: i'd be glad to yield. mr. dicks: this is an effort to overturn a law that was passed in 2007 that says -- try to do the most energy efficient approach to running the government. i mean, i think -- mr. flores: if the gentleman will yield? mr. dicks: i think it's common sense and i urge a no vote on the amendment. the chair: does the gentleman yield his time? mr. fattah: i'd be glad to yi
. it is my distinct pleasure to introduce the next president of united states. let's give a big nevada thank you to our governor and congressman for their leadership. [applause] it's a real privilege to work with them. they are great leaders for our state and listening to the comments of the congressman and a lieutenant governor, nevada is on the move. we can do a lot better. we met with these business onerous, part of the nevada family and as we talked with them, something that struck me that one of them said was that we have had to put our dreams on hold. because we have had to put our dreams on hold, we cannot hire. we cannot put people to work and there is a reason for that. that is what is happening in the white house. we need a leader. we need someone who has actually run a business. [cheers and applause] we need an answer. we need somebody who is not going to regulate us out of business. we need somebody who will not spend on to we fall over a cliff. we need somebody who will not tax us into oblivion. i have had the great privilege to meet governor romney many years ago when we served
the united states survive if half the country is getting some kind of check from the government? we have new stats that show 49.1%, almost 50% of the u.s. is getting government assistance in some form. eric, it's troubling, because this is the way that greece went. right? now, the question if you read the story a little bit more, it says families are becoming multigenerational. a lot of people are doubling up and moving home with their parents. grandparents are moving in with them. they say the "wall street journal," even if it wasn't happening because of the recession people would be getting more check from the government. >> eric: any way you slice it. look at the chart from the lower left to the upper right. chart is going up. president obama blast the right side of the chart right there. things aren't getting better. no matter what you hear on tv or how many times the president takes a victory lap saying it's better when we took over. it's not. if you look at that number, stood stamps up 4% from when he took over. $80 billion of food stamps, for americans on food stamps. more americans i
, such as united states bonds, as collateral. h.r. 3534 will require the government accountability office to assess the impact of these enhanced collateral requirements on the availability of surety bonds for emerging businesses and particularly business enterprises, seeking the prime contractors on federal projects. when the government enters into a contract, the american taxpayer, along with those in the contract, should be protected. that is why any contract valued at $150,000 or more requires a sewerity bond as a condition of the contract being awarded. the bond will pay the government and downstream contractors in the event that the contractor fails to perform the contract. bonds issued by so-called corporate sewerities which have been vetted and pre-approved by the treasury department provide for assurance to taxpayers and subcontractors in the event that a contractor failed to -- fails to perform. on the other hand, bonds issued by individual sureties have not been so vetted and are not subject to strong collateral requirements. accordingly, i support h.r. 3534 for several reasons. to begin
. right now here in the united states we have basically three approaches to the obesity problem facing nato and u.s. spending. and the three options are basically this. they were alluded to in the last panel and i will go over them very briefly. essentially the republicans laid out various options for eating more. in other words the house has offered a proposal to add $4 billion on top of what the pentagon has asked for. okay. we know this proposal coming from the house republicans is not going anywhere in the senate but it is a good indication where the political tenor is and what that faction of the republican believes is a solution to the problem that faces us. they have also put forward an alternative to sequestration. i won't go into that. if we look at mitt romney's campaign he basically said we should spend and this is an estimate, as much as $2.1 trillion over the next decade than what the obama administration for instance has laid out. 2.1 dral trillion more. want to emphasize that, mo, more the not cutting more. what is the obama administration's proposal? more or less stay t
% of consumption in the united states, the lion's share of that, 45% of total consumption was in passenger vehicles and light-duty trucks. what do we do about that gas guzzling that is going on? the thing we do is to look at how we can change how many miles to the gallon we get. and two, -- and to the president's credit, his administration has put in place these new standards, known to all of us as cafe standards that will double the u.s. efficiency of fleet of automobiles averaging a fleet-wide average of 54.5 miles per gallon by the year 2025. what does that do once we get there in 2025? that means we as consumers will save $1.7 trillion at the pump over the life of the program. a family that purchases a new vehicle in 2025 will save $8,200 in fuel costs when compared with a similar vehicle in 2010. so the life of the program, the standard will save 12 billion barrels of oil and eliminate 6 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide pollution. the solutions are there for us. the solutions are we move to these cafe standards and address the issues around speculation and we keep the robust doing that is
